As such, the exhibition serves as an exploration into a familiar thematic repertoire that has recurs throughout the artist’s works and stage productions.
Work by Kentridge is included on the Museo nazionale delle arti del secolo di Roma’s latest exhibition of the institution’s permanent collection, titled The Place to Be (opens 1 November).
The exhibition features over 60 works of art – from architecture, to installation, photography and other media – with pieces dating from the 1960s through to today, as well as some of the museum’s most recent acquisitions from 20.
Hosted in the Emerson Urban Arts: Media Art Gallery, the exhibition features the complete set of eight aquatint etchings and woodcuts, used as remnants of the 550m frieze, two long maquettes that diagram the processional, a set of monumental stencils, and a video showing the opening performance in Rome.
Works by six Goodman Gallery artists – Lisa Brice, Kudzanai Chiurai, Hasan and Husain Essop, Robert Hodgins, William Kentridge and Diane Victor – form part of the current group exhibition, I am because you are: A search for Ubuntu with permission to dream, at the Standard Bank Gallery in Johannesburg (2 February – 31 March).
Work by Kentridge is included on the Harn Museum of Art’s group exhibition, Poetic and Political, at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida (15 August – 8 July).
